Why are we here Perhaps the rationale is best summarized in the last paragraph of Description of the issue: Each repository is facing more or less the same challenges, problems and issues. Through the joint effort of the network and the documentation and resources produced, repository owners will face less risk, make more informed choice and hopefully encounter fewer problems.
Some issues So we will not talk on already mentioned issues Perhaps some new ones we are confronting with: –History (archive) of resources As a teacher I want to use resource like it was at a certain time –Derivatives / versions searching
